We all do things every once in a while that make us feel pretty freaking stupid. I put together a video to help decrease the number of times we do that in our lives.

OK, I'm coming to this late (because I had an 8 day film festival to attend) but: the song IRONIC is actually ironic. Dramatic irony is defined as "irony that occurs when the meaning of the situation is understood by the audience but not by the characters". Since we know that none of those things are ironic, but Alanis's 'character' doesn't...well, that's irony by definition.


It's super-meta, but it's true.

I totally said "epitome" wrong though :(

As far as sayings people use, "it was in the last place I looked" drives me nuts! Of course it was in the last place you looked! Why would you keep looking once you had already found the misplaced item!

In our classes, we've messed up "French" and "France" before. It turned into "The FRANCH" :D

Ah, but Hank! Nothing that Alanis Morissette sings about in "Ironic" is ironic! And THAT is ironic!

No worries Julie. Up until I was fourteen, I pronounced balcony as "bulk-ony." I mispronounce things all the time. I even did facade and I was taking French at the same time.

I am 49 years old. I found out one month ago that I've been mispronouncing the word "comely" (as in "She's a comely lass.") for my entire life. It's COME-ly not COMB-ly. I felt sort of stupid.
